Since a breadbasket will often give one a leading first impression of the restaurant they are about to eat at, ensuring its quality is a vital step in the dining experience. Adding to the authenticity of his cuisine empire, Frank DePasquale opened Bricco Panetteria, a full-service bread bakery that provides every piece of bread that is served at each one of his restaurants as well as at DePasquale’s Homemade Pasta Shoppe.
As you finish your meal and are strolling back to your car or hotel, be sure to stop at the Panetteria and pick up one or more loaves. The bread tastes delicious, the aromas delightful and it will one more memory of your time in the North End. You might even have to make a point of coming back every couple of days just to pick up a loaf of your favorite.
